Our intrepid Second Form pupils set off to the Reach Outdoors Centre in Devon. Throughout the week, pupils demonstrated a huge amount of support for one another and to staff, whether that was pulling on (really pulling on!) wetsuits and buoyancy aids, to encouraging each other to overcome fears such as camping away from home or jumping into the sea for the first time.
The group coasteered, walked along the Devonshire coastline, kayaked, and camped in sunshine and rain, maintaining interest and enthusiasm along with resilience, particularly with the camping when it was particularly chilly at night. They were patient with one another through sunshine and downpours showing their great sense of fun and humour; there were some lovely conversations between them all throughout the week.
Despite the coach being very delayed due to an HGV getting stuck in the Devonshire lanes which meant pupils having to carry their bags up and down a bumpy lane four times there and back, they always kept a smile on their faces and their spirits up. What an incredible group they are!
